Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Here’s what our day looked like:

Last night, the kids set up their Leprechaun Traps. So fun!

We woke up this morning to find that the leprechaun had already visited, played some tricks, left some gold glitter where he walked (including on their pillows), and left a note and some gold candy. SIMPLE this year!! He also used our toilet, as the water was GREEN and there was glitter everywhere in the bathroom! Definitely the favorite part for a 6-year-old boy!

We had a green breakfast (green eggs and ham per request of the boy):

After the big kid was off to school, my daughter and I made rainbow cupcakes.

When big brother got home, we role-played the leprechaun (one of us was the leprechaun and hid the gold, while the others built a trap to catch him!).

Later in the afternoon, we finally got around to growing our own leprechaun hair.

And to finish off our day, we decorated and ate our cupcakes! It was a great day!


What did you do to make the day special for your kids?!
